What's your favorite band EVER?


Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I love all kinds of bands... but my favorite types of music are alternative rock and psychedelic rock. My favorite band ever is Wilco, but I also love the Beatles, Brian Wilson, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Radiohead, etc. What's your favorite band ever?

I do not have a favorite band but Buddha Bar is my favorite compilation albums. So yes, I do fancy Buddha Bar a lot!

Favourite is tough, I love so much music. Metallica, Ludivico Einaudi, Julian Baker, The Head and the Heart, M83, The Band and Weezer are a sampling of some of my biggest musical influences. There are just way too many to list though.

It's a difficult one has it has changed over the years. I probably could not pick a single one but The Rolling Stones, The Doors, Creedance Clearwater Revival, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd and The Ramones would have to be in the shortlist. Having said that lots more are coming to mind. Individuals like Carlos Santana and Chuck Berry. Such a variation!

Hi Tracy 

I like all of those.  My favourite Song of all time is Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.  There have been others but none like this.

There are just so many, so this question posed in this topic is a truly difficult one.


But if pressed to only pick one, my favorite band/artist ever would have to be Jimi Hendrix. He produced music that was so ground breaking then, and so highly influential for my young ears (at the time).


Honorable mention to


Led Zeppelin


The Beatles


Crosby, Stills, and Nash

Emerson, Lake, and Palmer

For me it is a tie between Bob Seger and the Silver bullet band and REO Speedwagon. Have seen Seger 3 times, and REO 8.

Other that make the list not in any order:



Pink Floyd

Toby Kieth


Most of the time it is the song more than the artist.

Depends on the day and on hormone levels.Right now I am mid way through my injection cycle and Social Distortion its number one on thew playlist.But my tastes are pretty wide ranging. Right after an injection it is The Bangles, Adele, Maria McKee and she leads into Lone Justice from there to Green Day. From Social Distortion the journey heads into an almost fatal dose of Zeppelin, Cream and Sabbath. As the day of injection gets closer Kasey Chambers, Ronstadt and Tanya Donnelly are on the playlist.

It has to be Bruce Springsteen and the E Street band, I have seen them live over 20 times, great music great live show

My favorite band of all time is Journey. There are other bands that I favor, but I love every song Journey has produced.

I am finding it very interesting how many of us like the same music.  What's up with that?  (incidentally, that's a ZZ Top song)


My fav of all time is probably Pink Floyd.  My thinking and feelings have always been heavily influenced by them.  I love everything about their music and lyrics.  Hard to find a bad song.


Honorable mention would go to Black Sabbath, again because they influenced me greatly.


Obviously, those two represent quite a dichotomy musically, which is a valid representation of me.  Lyrically, they're not all that different.  These two account for a disproportionate amount of my listening time throughout my years.  These are the bands I put on headphones for.


I haven't seen White/Rob Zombie mentioned on either of these music threads.  They/he are one of my gotos when I'm in the mood for razor-edged head banging.  I like every song on Hellbilly Deluxe.

Thanks Tori

You just bought a memory back.  The first time I ever heard a cd played was at a  friends place in Melbourne.  The cd was Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon.  It was heavenly.

At that time (age 15 I think??) I already owned Animals (still my personal fav) but had not heard Dark Side.  The first time I heard it was at a friend's and we were tripping.  Before I left his house, I had traded him out of it!  I still have it.  It's a UK Quadraphonic vinyl.  Of course, I've never found a quad system to play it on.

Being I am left handed I play a left handed Hofner violin style bass and was bitten by their music bug in February 1964 and I have been a songwriter and musician ever since - I would like you to guess who my favorite band and influences.....

Although The Eagles, Pink Floyd (Dark Side of the Moon), Led Zeppelin, Yes (before they got carried away getting too complicated) and my vocal heroes CSN - when I wrote, I can do up to 8 vocal harmonies and they end up usually sounding like CSN meets James Taylor.

I have loved the band 10 Years since i was... 15? that was about 9 years ago so I guess I've loved them for a LONG time, lol! I'm listening to all my music on shuffle and the first song I've ever heard by them came on: Wasteland. What a coincidence! They're labeled as Alt-Metal? Don't know what that means. I saw them once in January 2018 I believe. It was my first ever concert and it was EPIC!! I love them to bits! An up and coming contender to them though, is Artificial Language which I've found in the last year? They ROCK! They're labeled as Prog-Metal I believe.

Growing up...For years, I listened to anything and everything Led Zeppelin. I practically lived for Led Zeppelin. Then in the early 80’s moved into alt rock, then (and still) jazz, then by the 90’s, I added Trance, Electronica, and New Age to my favs. Today,  if I had to narrow it down to a single band I enjoy most, I’d have to say almost ANYTHING from the band Enigma and their related Gregorian projects.

The Doors! I was 15 in '67 and doing the whole garage band thing and when I first heard them on AM radio. I collected their albums and sat at my Farfisa single keyboard at home playing along. I dressed like Morrison and, being a budding poet myself, I scribbled raunchy doggerel verse. And. . .AND! I have always been pretty decent when it comes to imitating voices and I did His very well according to friends. The song: The End was my then ultimate favorite song of all time.

But times do change. . .sigh!

Wow, so many choices, but if I had to put one band at the top of my list is has to be Pink Floyd.  Their progressive style has always moved me and has made progressive rock my favorite genre.  


A shout out to you though cybreraphael for mentioning 10 Years;  I really like them a lot.  They are one of my favorite modern bands, and I think it is because of their progressive underpinnings.

     i won't forget how the Beatles changed the whole music scene.  I loved them and as their music changed i grew to respect them more and more.  At bit later i listened to the Stones and other groups.  I vividly remember moments of a Janice Joplin concert at the Fillmore East.  A bit later i was at a free Grateful Dead concert in a park in Atlanta.  The band came out and played after a regular concert. The folks in the sound truck threw marshmellows to folks as they came in.  Eating several of those made the night and the music merge.

Ahh the 60's

That song is like soooo deep. Morrison once would be arrested on stage, that just added to his mystique :)

I have to share something I hope you enjoy. I run something in our community called a Chautauqua - it is living history where the performer dresses as a historical person like Amelia Earhart, George Washington, Robin Williams, Calamity Jane, Lucille Ball, and on and on and come out and talk to the audience as that person and then field questions. I have done Jim Morrison and I had the band there as well and I did an unplugged evening as Tom Petty and then did Petty as a benefit for the homeless. 

Any way ... back to the story... when I did Jim Morrison, my friend asked this 84 year old regular attendee if he even knew who Jim Morrison was and he said no, but he always learns something at the Chautauqua's when he comes. I also have to share that my step-daughter still has a hard time thinking of me (I was 60 at the time) running around stage in tight leather pants. I attached photos of me as Jim Morrison, Tom Petty and Paul McCartney LOL

It is rather hard to describe the Fillmore.  It was wonderful to be in a large auditorium filled with long haired folks.  At that time long hair created a kind of instant bond and trust. The summer of love had just passed and while society wondered what was going on, it seemed there was a kind of beautiful peaceful revolution going on.  My girlfriend and i sat down and enjoyed the many joints that freely passed seemingly everywhere.  BB King had all of us up and dancing almost as soon as he came out.  Some other unknown group, like the Doors came next.  They were wonderful.  I had gone to see Janis and she did not disappoint.  Her singing gripped and tore at ones senses and soul.  So much was expressed.  BBKing came out and played with her.  It was certainly a beautiful night worth remembering.  Thank you for asking about that time.  The music and life of the late sixties changed me forever.

WOW...double WOW - what amazing line up ... I wanted to go to Woodstock but I was like a junior in high school and I could not find someone to go to New York with me - so I was BUMMED - I am going to be presenting a Woodstock presentation at one of my Chautauqua's in town - I have a slide presentation of how it got going, the principals, the struggles, interesting facts, the performers then and now (if still alive) and several couples (like the couple on the cover of the triple album set) then and now. And I assembled a band to do a mini-Woodstock set so people can enjoy or remember and re-enjoy the music.

      I'm feeling a little better today.  Susan is spot on here.  For me, right now, it is a matter of financial security.  I just want to be out of the business of paying interest.  I had to deal with paying a whole year of taxes in April and I'm just now recovering from that.  I need to build up some savings, or rather financial progress, before I can justify spending any more.   My plan today is to schedule an electrolysis session to real feel what that is like.  Then my thought is to wait about 2 years to jump into this.  At that time, I should have a new roof on my house and have my mortgage below $200K.  And if I can have a nice emergency fund/buffer in my finances, then I should be able to feel good about spending money on this venture.   I plan on doing a full transition and paying out of pocket for the whole thing.  If I do it at all that is.  I have a good career.  My career path has been shaky.  It's been a rough journey.  And whether I transition or not, I'm going to have a frugal retirement.  But I absolutely can afford to do this.  I've worked it out in my budgets.  I think that the more financially sound I become and the closer to retirement I get, the more I'll feel that this is the right path for me.  The activities that I've setup for myself in retirement are absolutely free and even have the possibility of earning income.  Although I could imagine having a better house, there is no need for that.  My house is wonderful and has architectural features.  I drive a $5,000 car and work from home.  I don't even need the car and have spent a good 20% of my adult life without a car.  I biked 700 miles last year.   I don't know what else I would spend my money on.  I just know that I don't want to be spending it on interest!   The big question is will I still want to do this in 2 years?  I'm curious about how healthy I'll feel in 2 years.  I'm a little nervous that HRT and surgery would be  bad for my health.  Are there stories on this site about people who have had bad outcomes with surgery?

      Nice to see some positive news for a change!

      After I started HRT, it was about two months before the girls had grown enough that they were at risk of being noticeable.  By that time, I needed to wear a bra.  (Not for support: five years later, I still struggle to fill an A cup.  More for motion control.)  I was able to hide it under thick winter shirts, but as the weather warmed in spring, that became less of a possibility.    The final straw was playing in a concert band's spring concert.  The uniform was white top/black bottom.  There was no way to hide a bra under a white shirt, so I had to go out and buy a (man's) white tank top to go under it to hide the bra.    Shortly thereafter, I ended the charade and came out, exactly three months after starting HRT.

      I'd like to preface (that's how you spell that?!  Who knew?) this by saying that I know everyone responds differently, at different rates and with a staggering range of ultimate outcomes, so I would take any reply with a grain of salt.  That said, how long might someone have before they start to raise eyebrows amongst those aren't "in the know", but have known you for years.  And how long might someone have before... say... a lesbian leaning bisexual sister that married a trans man and has been close friends with several (trans men) but has (I'm relatively sure) had little interaction with trans women, (same for me, runs in the family I guess) start to ask questions, if at all?  Though I'm assuming that's unlikely.   Why is this one so hard to hit submit on!?  Huge wave of anxiety!

      I looked it up and they actually have an English version of their website! I thought they were French but they're just in Europe. As I said i didn't test their gym binder, but I quite like their extra-compressive one.
    • awkward-yet-sweet
      @Mmindyis correct.  This goes back all the way to the Revolution.  Earlier, even.  On one side of my husband's family, every generation has served...all the way back to the colonial militia in Jamestown in the early 1600s.  Kind of interesting to study the history.
    • awkward-yet-sweet
      To me, Memorial Day is about those who served and died, and also about those who survived but carried pain and trauma afterwards.  We should remember the cost of maintaining our way of life, and also the cost of careless politics.  And our leaders should see the cost, and be inspired to choose peace where possible.     My husband served in the National Guard. Won't talk about it.  His father was in the Army in Vietnam, and his mother was a military physician.  They don't talk about it.  There's something unspeakable that those in service go through, and often it is a family tradition.  This weekend, they're decorating the graves of military veterans... including friends and family.  While we're enjoying sports, barbecue, and time off....we enjoy it because others have secured this time and place for us.
    • awkward-yet-sweet
      @LearningWhoIAm I really feel for you.  It must be awful to have such a negative reaction.    However, all is not lost.  Your husband cried because he loves you and your life together.  It is possible that love may prevail.     Based on what he said, it seems like he has two issues.  He's unable to absorb the idea that your personality isn't changing, and he is worried about being or appearing to be gay.  The first one can work itself out in time. The second may take some counseling, but he may be able to overcome that also.   IDK what vows you said at your wedding (if any).  Mine were the standard set of "for richer/poorer, in sickness/health, etc" until death.  Men often live by a code of honor, so returning to a specific promise like that might influence him, or at least begin a calmer discussion?

      Tragically, that's me always. My "tan" is a scattering of small freckles, no closer than one inch apart or I burn like a magnesium flare. The sun is NOT my friend.   If you don't already, I'm also going to suggest moisturizer. It's a girl's best friend for maintaining a youthful and healthy appearance.   As always, the laughter is free. Glad you appreciated it sweetie!   Hugs!
    • Ticket For Epic
      @Jackie C. The "white-out" Comment had me in stitches!   I feel the pain!  That's me in winter but I'm a "day walker" and tan an orangish color come summer.  Luckily, I'm freckled everywhere but my face, oddly they faded permanently after a couple seasons of roofing in my twenties.  The sun has done me no favors (it's not THATa bad but...)20 years of a beard however, saved the lower half of my face.  Problem is, there is now a notable complexion difference at my beard line and I'm certain it would call attention, should I ever go out without a mask.  I may never go out in public without a mask again, even if I never come out and boy-mode for the rest of my life...  Sublime!   I just need one damned girlfriend!   Don't get me started on the anxiety feel walking down the makeup isle.  What the hell does an orange girl do for foundation!?  Try finding that on YouTube.   Anyway, thanks for the advice, which I will take and the laugh, which was much needed.   Much luv
    • awkward-yet-sweet
      @Vidanjali Awesome!  Glad you already have projects, and celebratory ones at that.  Cute shirt too!  If I was a bit bolder I'd totally wear one ☺️
    • Jackie C.
      Whelp, I'm "can use white-out as concealer" pale, so I think I feel what you're saying. On my skin, a little bit goes a long way. I usually just do some eyeliner, MAYBE some eye-shadow, lipstick and then call it quits.   As a ginger, if you're freckled... you've got two choices: Either do what I do, or run concealer over everything to cover them up. Personally, I adore freckles but you have to do what feels right for you.   Hugs!
